#8 of 16 in Things to do in Seaside
A paradise for those with a sweet tooth, Seaside Candyman will literally make you feel like a kid in a candy store. This old-fashioned candy shop is stocked with jellybeans, candy sticks, jawbreakers, and a remarkable selection of salt-water taffies. With such an extensive range of flavors to choose from--180 of taffy alone--you may have a hard time picking a few to take home. If you're up for an adventure, consider ocean spray or maple bacon taffies.

  • Where to start? There about as many taffy flavors as you could think of (I would say at least 75) from sweet to fruity to mint-based flavors, as well as other various candy treats and ice cream. The older gentleman that owns the shop is always such a kind man, and it always seems he instilled this attitude upon those who work there. Always look forward to picking up a number of handfuls of different flavors.
  • Outstanding selection of salt water taffy. 170 flavors. Lots of other stuff too. Decent prices compared to other candy shops in the area.
  • The people that work there are fun and down to earth. Salt water taffy everywhere! The peanut butter fudge was my favorite. It's just a great place that really shows how "real"and fun Seaside and Oregon are.
  • OMG! I died and went to Salt Water Taffy heaven! This place is awesome. We happened to meet the owner and he is just the most personable guy I think I have ever met. Love the variety of sweets. The store is incredibly clean. The staff is very friendly. When in the area you MUST take a trip to the Seaside Candyman!
  • Tried the fudge it was gummy , Carmel corn not like I remembered still ok though gummy fruits were good and sf candy didn't. Have much flavor. Service needs more smiles and friendly attitude s.
